Throughout our new series “The Final Word: Knowing Christ through Hebrews,” I am writing prayers related to the text on which we are preaching each week. This prayer is drawn from Hebrews 3:1-6. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You could also view my message, “God’s House,” from this passage here.
Our Father, You are the builder of everything,
from the beautiful expanse of the created world
to the gracious household of Your people, the church,
both of which have come into being through Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus Christ, we fix our thoughts on You.
You are worthy of greater honor than Moses,
who served God by bearing witness to the truth.
You are the Son of God who has not only born witness,
but sacrificed Yourself to birth that new household, the church.
We fix our thoughts and the eyes of our hearts on You, Jesus,
while also confessing that so many things cause us trouble.
We stumble and trip along the way because of sin and burdens.
Please strengthen us to hold firmly to our living hope in You.
We are absolutely lost without You,
and that is why we pray to You,
the Triune God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—
to whom be all honor and glory, now and forever.
